Compuware, IBM Systems Magazine Co-Present Live Webcast:

DETROIT, Jan. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced it will host a live Webcast in partnership with IBM Systems Magazine. The session will highlight new functionality from Compuware that dramatically improves the way IT teams collaborate when resolving application exceptions and performance problems, helping improve quality and time to market.
Session Title: "Did Ops Communicate the Problem? Did Dev Fix it Yet?" 
   
Date and Time Thursday, January 23 at 11 a.m. (ET) 
   
Why: After the root cause of an application problem is isolated, how does operations or QA 
  hand it off to development? Typically, development is manually contacted without the key
  information needed to recreate and resolve the problem. The manual sharing of information 
  can prolong resolution time and increase application backlogs, both of which can be 
  detrimental to the business. This is especially critical because technology failures are
  plaguing businesses at alarming rates.
   
What: Compuware has united its APM for Mainframe and Developer Productivity solutions to 
  make handoffs smoother than ever before. Unprecedented levels of integration now enable 
  the automated capture of detailed information regarding an issue, enabling development 
  teams to jumpstart the resolution process and accelerate the delivery of IT services. 
  During this session attendees will see how this functionality can help IT improve collaboration, 
  quality and time to market.
